Subject Re: Re: xhtml problem

That is absolutely my point.  The jstl tags work seamlessly with the jsp el, and allow very
elegant solutions to some of the required tag structural problems associated with using jsp-document
format.  But the s2-tags don't play very smoothly in some situations, which makes them much
less useful.  If the s2 tags integrated better with jsp-el and jstl, then the s2-tag library
would be a much stronger player.  Of course, that is only for those of us (purists or nutbars
or lunatics or something, I don't know the proper term) who prefer to do everything in jsp-document
syntax.
